Like Nabokov, Ugresic affirms our ability to remember as a source for saving our moral and compassionate identity.
Ugresic must be numbered among what Jacques Maritain called the dreamers of the true; she draws us into the dream.
Dubravka Ugresic is the philosopher of evil and exile, and the storyteller of many shattered lives the wars in former Yugoslavia produced . . . This is an utterly original, beautiful and supremely intelligent novel. --Charles Simic
"A brilliant, enthralling spread of story-telling and high-velocity reflections... Ugresic is a writer to follow. A writer to be cherished."--Susan Sontag
